Buhari Signs NOUN Act into Law



While the president declined the signing of the Electoral Act, he has signed the NOUN Act.

“Meanwhile, President Buhari has assented to the amendment made to the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) Act. With the assent, NOUN can now operate like other conventional universities.

Enang said, “Again, President Buhari has also assented to National Open University Amendment Act, which allows the National Open University to operate as all other universities, having the same power and functions and the same administrative structures eliminating possible discrimination as some use to want to have on its products and programmes.

“It has also allowed the establishment of some centers to be called study centers and given conditions for the establishment of such study centres.”
